An Air Purifier Can Take Your Homes Comfort to the Next Level

You trust your heating and cooling to make your home feel nice. It keeps you warm all winter and cool and refreshed all summer. Did you know you can boost that level of comfort? You can with an air purifier—and a whole-home model can be easily added into your existing HVAC system. An air purifier can boost your home comfort by removing dust and other pollutants, destroying unpleasant smells and by combating germs and bacteria in your home’s air.

Quite a few people find relief from seasonal and indoor allergies when they enlist the help of an air purifier. Keep an eye out for one that filters out at least 95 percent of particles as small as .3 micron (a micron is one-thousandth of a millimeter). Any person who suffers from allergies in your home may notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms. Reducing these pollutants is important even if you don’t suffer from allergies, though. According to the EPA, the long-term impacts of low indoor air quality include respiratory and heart diseases and cancer, which can all be very draining. A great air purifier can also kill a great deal of germs and bacteria. For example, the Lennox® PureAirTM combats 90 percent of germs and bacteria down to .01 micron. Our team at B & B Heating & Cooling will help you pick the best air purifier for your healthiest home.

Another way an air purifier can make your home more comfortable is by neutralizing household odors. Everyone likes a fresh-smelling home. Odors from pets, cooking, and even a child’s sports gear can result in a lot of different odors. Working to hide odors with cleaning products, air sprays or scented candles can actually pollute your indoor air more. The right air purifier can lessen household odors, leaving you with clean, healthy air.

One caveat when searching for an air purifier: some models actually produce ozone, a known lung irritant. Make sure the model you pick doesn’t give off ozone. You can even find a model, like the PureAir, that not only doesn’t create ozone, but uses carbon filtration that actually lessens ozone generated by other sources in your home.

There are a lot of air purifiers to choose from. Look to our team to help you choose one that will do what it says it’ll do and will meet your home comfort needs. Give us a call at 314-325-7552. We’re here to help you maximize your home comfort!
